Admiral 361-5Q


Bands: AM

Tube Lineup: 12K7, 12SA7, 12SQ7, 50L6, 35Z5

A nice radio produced by Continental Radio & Television Corporation as the model 5Q, this Admiral sports a grand gold-brown dial and four station preset pushbuttons at the top of the cabinet. The circuitry is a simple AA5 that performs well. For a simple radio, the cabinet was nicely designed and the wraparound grille louvers leaves a good finishing touch. For Admiral radios from around this era, I believe the numbers in the model number before the dash represents the cabinet and dial configurations, and the chassis model for technical information is after the dash. The model 5Q for this Admiral can be found in the Rider schematics under Continental Radio & Television Corp. Also check out the similar Admiral 577-5Q and Truetone 278-5Q.
